Cogent cases can be made for a number of these fillies so with William Knight's string hitting a little bit of form, we will hope that DANCE COMPANY can get back to winning ways. The daughter of Aussie Rules confirmed the positive impression that she created in two Newbury maidens with victory at this course in May but has disappointed on turf since and can do better here. Negin ran too badly to be true at Doncaster and Ed Dunlop reacts by applying headgear to the Newmarket winner while Balady was well beaten on her first run in a handicap having got off the mark at Goodwood at the fifth time of asking. Bint Alzain was held when racing over 6f here though she has scored over today's trip at Kempton. Subtle Knife was behind Gerald Butler's filly on that occasion and has gone on to win at Brighton in the interim.
